Hey Dan, Hans,
I'm pretty sure there is no direct way to go from SpaceNavigator ->
ChucK. In its current form, ChucK HID only deals with devices that
identify themselves as keyboards, mice, or joysticks.
I actually bought one of these a while back for the specific purpose
of getting it to work in ChucK, so there's a definite possibility of
that manifesting in some form. In the long term, I think it would be
better if ChucK had a way of dealing with any kind of generic HID.
